Redeeming 9-11: Building God's Kingdom Today

When has an hour changed the world?

We think of Pearl Harbor, which began at 7:55 on the morning of December 7, 1941. Japanese forces withdrew at 1:30 that afternoon after killing 2,402 Americans. On a positive note, many will remember July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the Moon and told the world, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Others will cite the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, or the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, or the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989. But everyone thinks of 9/11.

That Tuesday morning dawned cloudless over the Manhattan skyline. At 8:45 A.M., American Airlines Flight 11 smashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Seventeen minutes later, United Airlines Flight 175 hit the South Tower. American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the Pentagon at 9:37 A.M. United Airlines Flight 93 crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 A.M. The attacks cost 2,977 civilians from 90 countries their lives—more than died on Pearl Harbor or D-Day.

Why did God allow the worst terrorist attack in American history?

God redeems all he permits. As we near the tenth anniversary of 9/11, how would the King of the universe redeem this tragedy? What is God saying to our people? To our churches? To you?
